Camel

Top:  Loft

Pants:  Liz Claiborne

Shoes:  Payless (aren’t they cute?)

Necklace:  Forever 21

REFLECTIONS:

Is it so wrong to color coordinate?  I see a lot of pops of color with neutrals these days but sometimes it’s okay to go back to basics … my pants happen to match the camel color sweater stripes so bam!  An instant outfit.

Late this morning

So, this must have been the 10th outfit I put on this morning before work… why does it take so long to figure out what goes with what?  Geez.  🙂

 

Top:  Liz Claiborne

Skirt:  Ann Taylor via Goodwill

Shoes:  Ann Taylor Perfect Pumps

Scarf:  NY street vendor 🙂

Necklace/Bracelets:  F21/Claire’s

Approx cost of total outfit:  $30 (not including the shoes)

REFLECTIONS:

I definitely need to skim down the clothes in my closet.  There is stuff that I just haven’t worn in years so why keep any of it?  Maybe this will help me save time in the mornings in figuring out what to wear!

Patent Pumps

Lord, help me… I just bought an almost new pair of Ann Taylor Patent Perfect Pumps for $50 shipped!

Pink gingham and blue

Saw this gingham shirt on another blogger, Sydney, at  petitelittlegirl.com and when I came across it at Old Navy, I just had to pick it up.  I normally would’ve walked right by it as I don’t wear a lot of pink or gingham, but I knew that it could look awesome as Sydney had dressed it up so why not… and it was marked down to only stinkin’ $6!!

Pink Gingham Top:  Old Navy

Navy Sweater:  Old Navy

Pants:  JC Penney

Shoes:  Target wedges — love!

Necklace/bracelets:  Claire’s

Approx cost of total outfit:  $30

REFLECTIONS:

This is a comfortable and work appropriate outfit… I would never have ever thought about wearing this pink shirt under a blue sweater but I’ve been paying more attention to the mixing and matching that we can do with fashion and all you bloggers out there are wonderful at providing the inspiration to try something new.

Take 2

Ok, so I had worn something else to work today, didn’t feel quite comfortable in how it looked, and went home at lunch to change.  Anyone else ever do that?  This is my 2nd outfit I settled on for the rest of the afternoon.

Top:  Loft outlet

Cardigan:  Old Navy

Tweed Pants:  Coldwater Creek

Skinny Belt:  Talbot’s via Goodwill

Bracelet: random yard sale

Necklace:  Claire’s

Shoes:  Payless (the best oxfords)

Color explosion

So, it’s a rainy cold day here and I wanted to wear my boots to work —

Top:  Liz Claiborne

Jacket:  Motto (QVC outlet)

Skirt:  Harold’s via Goodwill

Boots:  Target

Socks:  old

Scarf:  Target

Approx cost of total outfit:  $60

REFLECTIONS:

When I look at the pics, I think I look like a balloon but today, I don’t really care.  I’m comfy and warm and sometimes that is all that matters.  🙂

Fat

I feel fat today 😦

Top:  Loft Outlet

Cardigan:  NY&Co

Pants:  JC Penney

Skinny Belt:  Ann Taylor

Necklace:  Silpada**

Approx cost of total outfit:  $40

REFLECTIONS:

– I hate tucking shirts in.

– I have fat arms.

– I don’t know how to work a colored skinny belt correctly into outfits.

Ugh, I guess I just feel fat today.

**P.S.  I didn’t include the cost of the necklace in the approx total because it was purchased as a gift for my daughter… spent way too much $$ on it but at least she loves it (and I get to wear it too!).  Oh, and the shoes I am wearing were bought at Rack Room Shoes and aren’t even worth mentioning — hence no pic of my feet (went for comfort not style today).  Ho hum.
